Attorney general questions bill to allow permitless concealed carry in most Nebraska counties

Source: Omaha World Herald

By Martha Stoddard

LINCOLN — A bill to make permitless carry of concealed weapons possible across most of Nebraska raises “significant constitutional concerns,” according to an opinion issued by Attorney General Doug Peterson’s office on Monday.

The opinion said Legislative Bill 236 would improperly delegate state authority to the counties and would do so without adequate standards to guide county boards, both of which appear to violate the Nebraska Constitution.

In the wake of the opinion, State Sen. Tom Brewer of Gordon, who introduced the bill, was scrambling to decide how to proceed. The measure had been expected to be up for debate this week.

He said Tuesday that he could proceed with the bill as is, amend it to allow concealed carry statewide without a permit or replace the current contents of the bill with portions of three less controversial measures relating to concealed carry.

8. Nebraska state law

prohibits concealed carry

while he or she is consuming alcohol or while the permitholder has remaining in his or her blood, urine, or breath any previously consumed alcohol or any controlled substance

This is extrapolates to carrying is not allowed in a place there serves alcohol.

This proposed change does not appear to alter that restriction.
